I made these three white "slip" dresses from Simplicity Pattern 5226 variation B.



Alteration to the pattern is that I fully lined the bodice of the dress instead of using the bias strip edging on the neck & sleeves as the pattern called for.

These are size 3,5,7 for my daughters and niece for a family photo we're having done with all of us. I machine embroidered the first initial of each girl on the front and added decorative machine stitching near the hem where the topstitching would be to hold the gathered piece on. I think they turned out gorgeous and would look good in one of those "on the beach" family photos!

They are a very simple and quick project as there are no zippers or buttonholes -- they want you to make a buttonhole out of embroidery floss, but I used a little loop of 1/8" elastic when I sewed the lining to the back so viola, instant buttonhole!

oh, perfect for a beach photo.  They would look smashing in a summer scene time really.  They are very pretty and I love the hem detail.

I made this same pattern up for my girls (out of a goodwill sheet).

You definitely made the right choice in lining the bodice instead of using the bias tape.  I thought about lining the bodice of mine, but opted to follow directions...  I think lining lays better on this pattern...

Yours are gorgeous by the way!  Love the monogram and the detail stitching.

These are beautiful!!!  I only wish I had a machine that did such fantastic stitches!  I think these are a great choice for the beach, too.

This is the second time I'd used this pattern and wasn't crazy about the bias edging the first time, so I decided to fix that with the lining, and it worked great

-- thanks for the atta-girl, it is nice to know people out there think my stuff is pretty.
